143w ago - Today what appears to be another PS JailBreak clone dubbed PS3Stinger has arrived according to PuppetMaster via PSX-Scene (linked above).
While the official Web site PS3Stinger.com isn't live yet, a Twitter page has been setup, and some preliminary details on this PS3 modchip are available below, to quote:
"The announcer Tech1000 states that it's: Just for reference and will change next week once the pcb's are ready.
I sent in an email earlier today requesting some more information and got the following response:
Thanks for the mail, Price depends on quantity 50-100 pieces is Euro35 stock ready to ship around 15th Sept (Pcb's ready next week so maybe a bit sooner). Exactly the same as the jailbreak as its a direct clone.
Difference with dealing with us is fast replies and we won't screw our customers on price, Also can do fast overnight shipping via Fedex to the US.
Some of the guys we are dealing with already are allsystemsgo.nl /Consolepro.nl and loads of the UK sellers including wii-chip.co.uk/ 360upgrades.co.uk so lots of people to vouch that we are legit as well.

188w ago - Today XSEED's Localization Specialist Jessica Chavez has announced that Half-Minute Hero ships tomorrow for Sony's PSP console.

So 3, 2, 1, START! Half-Minute Hero is NOT the title of a porno with a very small budget. It actually had a modest budget and most characters stayed clothed.
What Half-Minute Hero is, is a speed RPG/RTS (Real Time Strategy)/Shooter/exercise in affectionate satire.

Only 30 seconds, huh...? 30 seconds may not seem like enough time to save the world, let alone play an entire game, but Half-Minute Hero promises to deliver a true time challenge...over the course of many-many stages, modes, bosses and maps. (Over 20 hours of gameplay and each mode contains 30-50 distinct...
